More Seniors!

Yes, more High School Grads on the way, representing Alleghany & Craig County High Schools! Brittany & Jacob are cousins so we scheduled their sessions together for some family shots.  Had a great afternoon by the river hanging out with them and their families. Best of luck in your futures! =)

I witnessed a sweet celebration of love and family last weekend.  I love capturing such special occasions. Thank you, David & Brooke, for allowing me to share in your big day! Congrats!

The Hackens Boys

Big thanks to The Hackens Boys who hired me to do the photo shoot for their first cd! We shot at ” The Hackens” in beautiful Monterey, VA , on quite a blustery morning! Stay tuned folks, you’ll be able to buy their music on ITunes soon =)

Emily, Class of 2010

We lucked out for a beautiful afternoon for shooting Emily’s Senior pictures!

EMILY!!! Thanks for an amzing shoot =) Your style is so fun! Best of luck after graduation!

Mr & Mrs Marshburn

Wes & Allyson became husband and wife in a very sweet ceremony two weeks ago! It was obvious they were surrounded by love and well wishes from their family and friends. Congrats, newlyweds! Hope you had a fantastic honeymoon =)

Alpha Delta Pi Seniors of Virginia Tech

First, ladies let me appologize for the delay!

Now, the afternoon I spent with these ladies on the campus of Virginia Tech, ahhh I felt like I was in my college days again too! I adored my college days with my Chi Omega sisters and obviously these girls have had an amazing experience as well. What a sweet group of girls getting ready to head into the “real world”, best of luck! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon showing me around your house and campus; hope you love the pictures =)  And thank you, Brittany for setting up the shoot!! 

Today’s Teaser…

Blessed today with another awesome shoot! Thanks, Emily!

Kylie & Chloe

Miss Kylie is growing up before our eyes! I so enjoyed capturing her in one of her first spring outings in the grass and especially having her big sister/protector, Chloe the dog, around to join us for pics! I think all dogs know I’m a softy for them because Chloe kept coming back for more lovin–she even posed a little for me too! Thanks again, Brea, for letting me shoot your precious girls!

Love in downtown Staunton…


SO this shoot was one of the same–I felt so inspired afterwards! A gorgeous sunset + the  adorable area of downtown Staunton + a sweet couple so in love = a fantastic shoot!  I couldn’t be more excited to shoot Lauren & Dave’s wedding at the end of this summer. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!  Annnd I even got to catch up with an old friend who was a huge help showing us around–thanks, Joe!!

Blevins Twins!

I just wish every shoot was this great…I mean, I love every shoot, but these two were just so natural together! Obviously, huh? They ARE twins =) Between JJ showing off his great new smile (just got braces off!) and Callie’s fun style, I had a blast at this shoot!  Its such an awesome feeling to leave a shoot with more energy than when I arrived just because I’m so excited over what I just captured! Love it, love it, love it!
